Dear Duke, I remember laying in the hospital bed and trying to “visualize” and “Hypnobirth” you into this world... but now that I know your little Virgo soul so well I realize you truly may never have come out on your own 😂🙄 You are five now and all I can do it is bawl, I snuggled you in bed tonight and told you how special you were to me and you said mama, your the most special I cant believe you made me 🤯🥰 Your little soul means so many things to me, I am always astounded by your deep thoughts and I am afraid I will overthink every parenting decision I have to make with you because you will always be my #1... I breathe air because of you my sweet, forever my baby you’ll be!
It’s one of my favorite things to make @artifactuprising picture books... something about flipping through our memories makes me melt! But this new baby board book they have is soo great, you can customize it and use simple sight words to teach your kids to match their pictures and memories with the correct words! Use code LIZZIE15 to grab one, you won’t regret it!
It’s the new school year and we literally already caught a stomach bug last week.. that is a new record, 🤮 on week 1 🙄🤯! So I’m rounding up my favorite kids vitamins and supplements and sharing them all in my amazon shop! I love @maryruthorganics and @llamanaturals for our everyday multis and omegas! I’ve been giving the kids a boost lately with a vitamin c gummy and an elderberry gummy as well! I figure it can’t hurt! PS I know that gummies aren’t great for their teeth but I’ll pick my battle on this one 😜 Also.. pro tip, make your kids eat their entire lunch first and offer the gummy vitamins as a “treat” 👌🏼
That’s me and all three kids climbing the rocks before Kyle saved me 😂 Today was a good one, venting with my ladies about motherhood, watching the kids wipe out in the waves and eat cake.. and even I jumped in the ocean and let me tell you it was 100 cleansing for the soul!
You guys ... now that Hank is 5 months and we are ready to move him out of his @happiest_baby snoo bassinet.. I am ready to give you my thoughts! #1 The snoo is pretty dang impressive! #2 My baby didn’t really like it, I had to rig it with a @dockatot inside for him to actually like it. But I’ve had plenty of friends that swear it saved their life #3 It is definitely sleek and beautiful which I appreciate Here is my honest opinion, If your a new mom you may as well try it, they rent them now and there are a bunch of used ones on the market so it’s kind of a no brainer, and if you get one of those lucky babies that sleeps through the night straight from the hospital then amen! 🙏🏼
Sometimes you have to post a pic with no pants on 😂🤦🏽♀️ Well that’s a first! The last 12 days I’ve worked 16 hour days and haven’t felt inspired to post anything .. I felt all consumed by work, this morning before heading to set I was able to squeeze in a couple hours with the kids and it was life changing! 🥰🙏🏼
SUMMER... ok but for real is school time yet 🤪😝 work life / mom life in the summa time is no joke! Whispering to myself before each day starts.. I think I can, I think I can!
Dad goals! This guy right here gives me pep talks whenever I need them, he’s for sure a rad dad and he makes all our faces light up when he enters the room! This might be the busiest year we’ve ever spent together but I’m still trying to make sure we put in the time for each other! Love you so much @kyle__alexander
My kids definitely eat more when I pack lunch in these awesome @planetbox lunchboxes! Do you have picky eaters? You might NEED one of these @planetbox lunchboxes! Not only are they eco friendly, non toxic and built to last but they are so FUN! Check out my highlights today to see all the fun features of them and swipe right to see the inside! #planetboxrover #kidslunchideas
I’ve got plenty more grays, a face full of melasma, and a few extra lbs 😉... but you my #3 are worth it! Raise your hand if you love the phase where they can’t move or talk yet 🤗🙋🏽♀️
You have no Idea how much sand is in every crack and crevasse ... 😂🤦🏽♀️ First pic is peaceful life with one baby, swipe right to see life with three 🤪
Duke... “Ruby if you look up and smile this will be over quick” 🤣 This made me ask myself two things, #1 Do I need to cut back on my instagramming the kids? #2 Is Duke a genius! Haha 😂 Just so we are clear I am NOT going to stop filming or taking pics of the kids so basically Duke is learning to deal with it 😂🤦🏽♀️ I’ll help him pay for therapy as an adult 😬 For the best jammies ever that last for five years of kids always @happyhannas ❤️ #happyhannas
This is me 80% of the time.. surrounded by wardrobe on a truck in my element as a fashion stylist... do I miss my babies .. YES.. do I love my job ... YES Im working on a podcast episode all about the pull between working, momming, being a two income family and how that works for us! So many of you have asked me how I do it or about going back to work etc, and while I’m no expert I’d love to share my insight on the matter! Let me know what you want to know most about the work/mom/ life juggle!?
Sweet baby Hank you are one special little nugget, I think your an old soul and wise beyond your years, Im sorry that I only make skim milk but thanks for loving me anyways! 😂🤦🏽♀️ Four months of love from this sweet guy and it feels like you’ve always been with the Alexander Clan!
I didn’t want to post this because I feel fat, I hate my thunder thighs and cankles (the only bad thing my moms side ever gave me 😂) But that’s exactly why I am posting it! Who cares what my fat looks like, Kyle snapped this from the boat before we paddled out to a little beachy sandbar and it was a blast! You can’t live your life caring about what others think.. the young insecure Lizzie wouldn’t have worn a swimsuit ... but the mom of three don’t give a f*ck Lizzie let those cheeks hang out with pride! 😂🤦🏽♀️👌🏼 #bodypositive #bodypositivity #loveyourself #postpartum
Sometimes you just need a reset.... We headed up to Santa Barbara for a tiny getaway to spend the night on our boat.. our own little hotel on The water! (Swipe right to see her and check out my stories for the back story) Thankful for our old trusty nanny that’s handling all three over night 🙏🏼 Now I have to manage my mom guilt and try to enjoy my sweetie 😝😍
Guys... does each child you have add 5 years to the aging process 🤪 My hair is falling out in clumps.. send me all your fav postpartum hair serums/tips? Oh and let’s do melasma too while we are at it!! I’ll share a round up of everyone’s favs on my stories!!
Funny story.. I met Kyle in a bar 14 years ago, I made my best friend pick me up from his apartment the next morning 😬🤦🏽♀️I stored his number in my phone as “Kyle Hot Stuff” because I didn’t catch his last name and that’s still how he’s listed in my phone! Years later we worked together and when I replied to a client email with him cc’d he showed up as “Kyle Hot Stuff” later on set that client said well I guess you and Kyle are a couple 😂 OOPS! Love you Kyle hot stuff 😘😘 @kyle__alexander
